I find it quite fascinating the mobilization of the diaspora in recent weeks after the announcement of the protocols that would, assumingly, normalize relations between Turkey and Armenia. What amuses me is that after over 18 years of relations between an independent Armenia and the Diaspora, the latter still views itself as a "major player" in Armenian politics. Can't these people they realize that no matter how many rallies or demonstrations are held in the world, and no matter how much recycled rhetoric is used in the diaspora’s media, the government of Armenia has never, and will never, turn back from a decision that they made.
For gods' sake (there is a hint here about my religious views, if you could get it), the Armenian government does not listen to its OWN citizens, what gives the disoriented diasporans the notion that it will listen to them.
I guess at the end of the day, being relevant (even if it is a self-inflicted misconception), is what guides most of us.
